Great calzones!

The calzones were great! Lots of filling, crispy crust, and very moist. Served with a good sweet marinara. We also go the garlic cheese bread which was really good. It was a lot of food, and wasn't too much for the amount.

Call them up and say I would like to use the Facebook offer, Buy One Large, get small FREE. So they take my large order, then... More

Pizza by the chef is a wonderful locally owned establishment!! They are always extremely friendly, and have a very high-quality product. I love the Hercules, very comparable to a meat lovers pizza, they use salami and tons of cheese to make a wonderful pizza!

We got The Chef's Spinach Pie to go. The flavor was amazing! One of the best pizzas we've ever had! Even delicious warmed up later. We will make this a regular stop on our way to Branson. I highly recommend it!

Very small pizza shack with big flavors. We had the supreme which was very good, i do recommend that you ask for extra sauce. Our waitress for super friendly and helpful with the area. So glad she recommended the garlic bread. Made with fresh bread that she herself made that morning. Its nit something you want to pass on.

The pizza was just ok for me. My husband and I went on a Tuesday night and they were not crowded. My first comment was that the pizza was not pipping hot but more warm. We order a large pizza and received it pretty quickly. The topping were fresh but the crust could have been cooked a little longer. Just... More

This is usually our family's favorite pizza place, but this time we were very disappointed. I don't know if they're under new management, or if they've changed the recipe of the crust, but it's not good. The crusts had no taste, were burned on the bottom, but somehow slightly gooey in the middle. Both pizzas were drowning in toppings &... More

We had sausage, black olive and red onion on the pizza. We find it to be one of the better choices. Spaghetti is surprisingly good for a small place. Easy access. Waitress very friendly.

We always make a point to eat here while in Branson/Hollister because of it's high-quality food. Their pizza is very close to authentic NY style. There are a ton of house specialties (our favorite is Hawaiian) but you can build your own, too. There are 4 different sizes. They also had terrific subs on house-baked bread (favorite is double-meat Italian.)... More
